Cheating in that field will affect the lives of future ISS workers. Shameful and unforgivable.

@dagon

exactly. The irony of him negotiating this issue with South Korea is beyond comprehension.

Don’t screw this up Aso, you parasitic waste of our taxes.

He might as well. The wheels have really come off the Tory clown car. I really hope this is a big nail in the coffin for conservative ‘leaders’ around the globe.

Posted in: Driver running red light hits and kills 7-year-old boy on kick scooter See in context

Every day, at every signal I stop at, there is st least one car that is passing through the intersection after their light has turned red. I’m not exaggerating. Sometimes we’ll after. Sickening that the police, instead of actively enforcing the road rules, actually hide in the dark late at night waiting for someone to not come to a full stop at a stop sign in the middle of nowhere (personal experience).

sadly, it’s just a matter of when, and not if, this kind of tragedy happens.

Umm… that is definitely not the Spider-Man origin story in the Marvel universe. Was he adopted by Japan in the 70s?

Posted in: Abe damaged Japan's democracy, left legacy of power abuse, critics say See in context

Thank you for this article. For those questioning the erosion of democracy, just look at one of the first things he did when he returned to the top job. He immediately stacked the NHK board with cronies in order to control any criticism of him or his government. That’s the public broadcaster! And that’s cronyism at best, authoritarianism at worst. He also manoeuvred the silencing of critics from other networks as well, namely Ichiro Furitachi from TV Asahi’s Hodo Station, Shigetada Kishii from TBS’ News 23, and Hiroko Kuniya from Close-Up Gendai.

He was as authoritarian as you get.

Posted in: Why do you think South Korean movies, such as "Squid Game" and Parasite," for example, are achieving greater success and recognition abroad than Japanese films? See in context

Because they are made with a global audience in mind. Exactly the same with K-pop, whereas Japanese movies and music are created purely for domestic consumption.

Posted in: 'Unprecedented' super typhoon approaches southern Japan See in context

The rice in the fields needs about another month. Still green. It's more harvested these days using mechanical tractors than picking. Less than 30 minutes to cut an average rice field.

it depends where you are. Tanegashima harvested in July, August. Southern Kyushu around early October, further north is later. And just what is your average rice field?

Posted in: 60% of people with foreign roots questioned by Japanese police: survey See in context

I have a high school student who is soon facing that time where he must choose a university, a career path, a future. He has no idea what he wants to do, seems to have a bit of an attitude, and finally told me that he might join the police, mainly because he can’t think of anything else. Now, he’s a prime example of the type of people they recruit: lost, directionless, potentially dangerous, bigoted…

Posted in: The Japanese government needs to have people feel the merits of the My Number social security and taxation identification card. See in context

People from the US, don't know about other countries, have a social security number issued at birth, and that number literally sticks to them like glue until and after the day they die. You use a credit card, apply for a loan, passport, anything, and you have to use the SSN. You can be tracked anywhere in the world.

how’s that ‘freedom’ you people keep killing each other over going?

Telling a hospital politely to “F off” because they asked for your My Number card is hardly constructive, effective and downright antisocial. They (govt, govt departments etc) have your details anyway, you’re just being obstructionist.

Posted in: Protest against Abe state funeral See in context

Yes, where are the young people? Probably slaving away at a low paid job they can’t escape. Seems only the retired class with time and boredom on their hands are the protestors nowadays. Used to be university students ripping the place apart!

Posted in: Kishida wants to increase number of foreigners studying in Japan See in context

Good luck with that. But at least there seems to be some effort behind it rather than Abe’s announcing ’womenomics’ and expecting it to magically happen.

Posted in: Former Australian PM Morrison says he took five ministries because he was 'steering the ship' See in context

Rupert murdoch is Australian-born, however, he is an American citizen, presumably because his style of fascism suits that country.

now, Morrison on the other hand, is a self-important, ideologically driven, accidental prime minister. Should never have been in the position of becoming PM, except that he failed up in his various careers prior.

i just hope he’s not getting the 5 pensions of those ministries he secretly ‘headed’.

what a do-nothing pretender.

Posted in: Do you think China is a military threat to Japan? See in context

China will use an asymmetrical model, given that they are newbies to global conflict. And of course America would respond with its inflexible symmetrical form, and get their proverbials handed to them, so they are not to be relied upon.
